Cloud Printing Made Easier by FedEx Office
July 31, 2012
DALLAS, July 31, 2012 —FedEx Office loves a cloudy forecast. Cloud-based file storage allows people to synchronize and share files on different computers, and now FedEx Office is the first national retailer to provide an easier way to print them.
FedEx Office® Print & Go and FedEx Office® Print Online have increased their cloud coverage, but no umbrella will be necessary. These two award-winning products now integrate with cloud-based document storage services Box, Dropbox and Google Drive, which includes Google Docs. These integrations enable on-demand printing of files stored in the cloud online or at more than 1,800 FedEx Office stores nationwide.
"FedEx Office continues to lead the way in making it simple and convenient to print anywhere, anytime," said Anthony Norris, vice president, Product and E-commerce Marketing for FedEx Office. "This integrated solution expands access to valuable documents— presentations, brochures, flyers, oversize prints, signs and more—on demand."
Print Through Copiers with Print & Go
With FedEx Office® Print & Go, access and then print files from the cloud directly to copy machines. FedEx Office® Print & Go also offers the ability to print from smartphones and USB flash drives. Last year, this easy-to-use technology received the “Most Innovative New Tech-Enabled Product” award from InformationWeek.
